Rhododendron Hellikki

Out of stock
Rhododendron - Helikki, Rhododendron x 'Helikki', is a fairly new dense broadleaf evergreen shrub with trusses of sumptuous and showy dark violet-red flowers. Appearing in spring, Helikki's flowers help make this a very effective accent! They blanket the shrub with stunning clusters of lightly scented trumpet-shaped flowers. Growing at a slow rate, this plant provides green foliage with narrow leaves that do not have any appreciable fall color; develops into an open multi-stemmed shrub with a more or less rounded form. Helikki rhododendron prefers cooler regions, is sun tolerant, and looks good year around. This easy care rhododendron needs excellent drainage, mulching and a peat moss soil additive. Roots will rot in poorly drained soil, so well-drained soil is a must! Helikki requires regular waterings, particularly in hot, dry weather; established plants can benefit from fertilization. Rhododendrons are ornamental, acidic-soil loving broad-leaf evergreens and are ideal for shrub borders and informal hedges. The most favorable time to prune is when there are no flower buds in the early spring, just before growth begins.
